Eating is one of the most basic pleasures of life – especially when it involves your favourite food items. Nourishing your body can turn into a pleasure-filled activity if it involves the most flavourful dishes or those that evoke only the fondest of memories. However, if you have missing teeth, you may be deprived of the chance to enjoy such meals because of the difficulties associated with tooth loss. It is quite hard to enjoy your meals if the simple act of chewing causes extreme pain and/or embarrassment!
When you lose your teeth and do not address the tooth loss accordingly, your gums have no choice but to take on the role of the missing teeth when it comes to mealtimes. The gums are forced to work on chewing and cutting the food when you eat in the absence of teeth. Soft gum tissue is not meant for chewing food directly, so mealtimes become uncomfortable times especially when the gums become inflamed due to the (unwanted but necessary) force exerted to cut food.
Can you still enjoy your food if you lose your natural teeth? You can solve your missing teeth problems – including how to bring back enjoyable mealtimes – with the help of dental implants. The titanium implants are placed into the jawbone and attached to teeth replacements such as dental crowns or a fixed dental bridge to restore the health and attractiveness of a smile after tooth loss. Dental implants make it possible for you to once again have pleasure-filled meals as you savour your favourite food in complete comfort.
